Using Yahoo Pipes to Combine Library Feeds

I have been playing Yahoo Pipes recently. I have taken the feeds from our library's blogs and podcasts and created a single feed with them: All MVCC Library Feeds. I don't know how many subscribers I'll actually get with this, but it was easy, so I figured it doesn't hurt. If there were a few people who subscribed to several of our feeds, they may want to subscribe to all them in one place.

Good idea. An auto limit is great. I will have to talk to you more about your project. I would love to find a way to combine things, but then find a way to reduce the noise from the feeds.

Thanks, Jeff,
One thing that I've done to keep this from getting too crazy is that I've used the filter option in yahoo pipes to only include 2 posts for each blog or podcast, so at any one time there will only be 12 items in the Pipes RSS feed.

Good idea. However, you may end up having an overwhelming amount of information. What I have learned is that infrequent and targeted is better than sending everything often.
